30 Sept 2008-11 Jan 2009. For the first time in Europe, this exhibition brings together around 500 of the most important pieces from ancient Eskimo and Inuit culture, from several collections. The utilitarian and intimate objects are all representative of major epochs, cultures and sites, and illustrate the extraordinary environment of the Arctic regions. In this journey round the ice-cap viewers discover the Evenk, Dorset and Kuskokwim civilisations. This event focuses on the relationship between the isolated and hostile Arctic environment, and the development of the visual culture of the populations from Siberia and Alaska.
